Great deck! The only thing I would suggest is to smooth out your mana base a little bit. I would switch out some basics for the rest of the Triomes and the shocks (at least the red and green ones). If you do take out some basics, Cinder Glade could be replaced with another fetch land or Rootbound Crag for consistency. Other great lands that you could include are Mana Confluence , City of Brass , and Forbidden Orchard .

Also, I know it isn't really on theme flavorfully but Forbidden Orchard seems like a good fit here. Makes sure your Lightning Bolts and such always have something they can hit for more than lethal to draw a card.

So, you may want to finish your land base and give somewhat of an indication on what budget your on. Even a casual 5 color deck can have a hefty price tag due to the land base needed for consistency purposes.
Duals>fetches>utility pertaining to your strategy/shocks>rainbows>horizons> Pains>fast lands> anything beyond this is probably played due to budget restrictions or it's just laying around.
To a lesser extent Unclaimed Territory, Cascading Cataracts, Gateway Plaza, Rupture Spire, Transguild Promenade and you could probably use this but won't need it Cavern of Souls - its expensive but provides such a great utility to really stick it to control players.
If you're on a very tight budget and don't want to spend a lot on lands - though I HIGHLY recommend fine tuning a land base over running these cards but they ensure you'll be able to get activations off; Chromatic Lantern, Chromatic Orrery, Prismatic Omen and Joiner Adept

Hey there, pretty cool deck! With Progentius being a lot of mana, you may want to include some more/upgraded ramp cards- which are exactly the things I can recommend! Let's start off with the lands. Note that I may recommend things you purposely left out or can not afford, so if that is the case please feel free to ignore those! In 4+ color decks, there are usually 3 types of lands I recommend running. The first type is the shock lands. These are must-haves, for more reasons than you may originally think. Shock lands are cards like Breeding Pool, and there are ten shock lands in every two-color combination. These guys give you the option for two different colors and the option to be untapped! But a huge reason they are so powerful, is because they can be used effectively with cards like Nature's Lore and Three Visits. While nature's lore and such only say forest, if you wanted red mana, you could search for Stomping Ground, giving you both the red and the green! Thus, I would consider adding these shocks and replacing some of the less good effects you have that do something similar, like Sakura tribe elder, etc. The second type of land I would recommend adding are fetches- however, these can be super expensive, so I will explain other options after. Nonetheless, fetches are great because you can use them, to get shock lands similarly to what we did with natures lore! Fetch lands are cards like Windswept Heath and Scalding Tarn, allowing you to search for any land with those subtypes. They also work SUPER well with cards like Ramunap Excavator and Crucible of Worlds, because now you can play these fetches again and again and again every turn, meaning you'll never miss a land drop and can pick any colors you could possibly want if you have the shock lands. However, these are pretty expensive, and so I would recommend the pain lands or filter lands. Pain lands are cards like Battlefield Forge, giving you guaranteed colored mana. Filter lands allow you to put in one color, and get any combination of a different color and that color! For example, Mystic Gate. This can be especially great with Progentius's casting cost. The last and possibly the best type, are multicolor lands, that give you any color. Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard, Command Tower, and Tarnished Citadel are all great examples of this. A lot of these lands are super expensive, and yet lands are a super important part for getting progenitus out, so if you ever are looking to upgrade progentius, consider the ten shocks, ten fetches, ten filters, and ten pain lands, as well as a few multicolor lands.
I slightly mentioned some ramp cards before that work well with shocks, though there are quite a few other ones that could work super well in the deck. First one is Chromatic Lantern. This guy can help you EASILY not worry about which lands give you what colors, and allows you to just try your best to get 10 mana, as well as producing any color mana himself. Bloom Tender could be GREAT in this 5 color deck, meaning that before progentius it could tap a lot of mana but then even with him out, could add FIVE mana which sounds pretty great to me. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds could work wonderfully once Prog is out, tapping for 10+ mana all at the expense of a single mana. Even before that, it can be a very helpful mana dork. Speaking of dorks though, I would seriously recommend some smaller ramp dorks like Birds of Paradise, Sylvan Caryatid, Ilysian Caryatid, Noble Hierarch (which can also buff progentius) and a lot more. Last but not least, some extra ramp cards that I would recommend including are Arcane Signet, Commander's Sphere, Exploration, and Burgeoning!
But OMG there are so many amazing synergies here I would recommend too! Hunter's Insight and Hunter's Prowess could draw you SO many cards with Progenitus, especially if you give him double strike! Berserk could immediately double his power, and you don't have to worry about him dying because he has inestructible! Basically one mana double strike for progentius. Blessing of the Nephilim, Civic Saber, and Might of the Nephilim would be GODLY with progentius, the last one giving him +10/+10 already!!! You also may want to consider unblockable spells that can make Progentius unblockable for cheap mana, giving you an auto-kill.
Anyways though, that was a lot to think about, please ignore any spelling errors I was kind of rushing, and I hope this helps! Be sure to check out some of my decks like Double Trouble EDH ⫸PRIMER⫷ (where you can also find some of the best unblockable spells)!! Hope this helps, good luck on this great deck, an have a wonderful day! Cheers

Nice! I built a similar deck (Lureflankingbandtrampage) that aims to give Gabe lure, flanking, banding, trample, and rampage lol. I use Captain Sisay as the general to find various pieces, plus a bunch of cards that give opponents 1/1 creatures.
You might like these: Genesis Chamber, Seed the Land, Forbidden Orchard, Alliance of Arms, Parallel Evolution, Primal Vigor, Beastmaster's Magemark, Retaliation, Open the Armory, Three Dreams, Rapid Fire, Strionic Resonator

My girlfriend just asked me to put Slivers back together. Anyways, as far as the land base goes I'm gunna list. Things out by cost/relevancy
duals I know eww reserved list but if you got em or can proxy em play em
fetches they're getting their reprint in modern horizons 2 but still stupid expensive - but the fixing is just so good!
Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Meteor Crater, Pillar of the Paruns, Ancient Ziggurat, Path of Ancestry, Thran Quarry, Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge
I'm not a mega fan of the depletion lands but they're excellent if you're on a budget :)
shocks - you already got a few I'll recommend getting the rest
Utility lands very overpriced cardboard but the power is definitely there
From there, if those cards are out of budget/you cannot proxy I'd go with the Triomes, battlebond lands Sea of Clouds, check lands Hinterland Harbor, and lastly the painlands Battlefield Forge beyond those the lands start becoming too inefficient and you will be targeted playing slivers. Even if you're not the threat having a slow land base is a death sentence. Hope this helped :)

I'd say all of the lands you listed except for Maze of Ith. Fetchlands and shocklands are the best thing you can do your for landbase outside of the original duals (which are hundreds each). In a 5-colour deck you're already limited on how many types of lands you can have, and Maze of Ith doesn't do much notable for a deck like this IMO. If you're going this deep into expensive lands and tutors, I highly recommend picking up a Mana Confluence, City of Brass, and Forbidden Orchard. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is an auto-include in any 2+ colour deck that features Black and can be tapped for Black itself. Ancient Tomb is amazing in decks with lots of colourless requirements like this. Prismatic Vista is very good too though less on the priority list for its price.
If you're going to be investing a lot into lands, make sure you make a faux list before buying anything since you don't want to get excess that you won't use. My personal general priority for 5-colour (ignoring OG duals) goes:
Assuming you take just what I listed there that puts you at 30 lands (minus basics). That gives you room for cards like Cavern of Souls, Reflecting Pool, Exotic Orchard, etc. Of course it totally comes down to how much you want to sink into your landbase, but it's a good place to start before tweaking things to your preference. You should keep at least one of each basic, or at least your main colours' basics for backup fetching. Battlelands like Sunken Hollow lose value the more you optimized your landbase due to lack of backs but are still good to take over say, bondlands. Since you already have them they'll do fine while also having the bonus of being tutored out by fetchlands.
Now that the wall of land-related text is over, time for the other cards you listed. Demonic Tutor is top tier, definitely get it if you have the money. Also look at Vampiric Tutor and Worldly Tutor. I personally like Dromoka, the Eternal, Kaalia of the Vast you already know how I recommend it, and Nesting Dragon is decent as a card but I don't think it'd work well here since you don't have a way to easily pop the eggs yourself. Future Sight is okay but I personally wouldn't run it in Ur-Dragon. Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator I personally just take more mana rocks over but in your slower meta they could be decent picks. Mirari's Wake is amazing, and Nature's Lore you already know.
Since you're going this much into the deep end, once you get everything else set up first there's always the $$$$$ rocks like Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Chrome Mox, and god forbid Mox Diamond waiting for you. Just, you know, they're worth entire decks alone so only go for them once you're fully satisfied on the rest of the deck lmfao
